BVCA Annual Gala Dinner

We are delighted to be a main sponsor of the upcoming BVCA Annual Gala Dinner at the Hilton Park Lane on 28th November 2019.

The Annual Gala Dinner brings together the private equity and venture capital community at the end of the year for an evening of networking, musical entertainment and a high profile guest speaker which this year is Laura Kuensberg.

Laura (as we are sure everyone is aware) has been the BBC’s Political Editor since 2015, when she became the first woman and youngest journalist to take on the role; leading the corporation’s political coverage. She works across a wide range of BBC programmes; in particular, the 6 and 10 O’clock News and the Today programme.

The dinner will also host the BVCA Management Team Awards (National Winners) to recognise and celebrate the industry's success stories across the UK.

This is a highlight of the year for us and we will all be attending with some of our clients, so we hope to see you there.

I was introduced to Cindy Casciani at EquityChair as part of my networking to build my non executive portfolio. Over this time, Cindy has been in touch regularly with a number of interesting and relevant private equity backed deals, some of which were very early stage and did not progress to completion. However, Cindy was incredibly professional in her management of the process, giving me very regular status updates.

Earlier this year, she approached me on behalf of Lyceum Capital to discuss the Chairmanship of CuroCare, ahead of the deal completing. As Cindy and I had been in touch a number of times since our first meeting, she had a very good understanding of my skills and business interests. CuroCare is in a space that interests me and I could see instantly how my skills and experience would add value to the business and complement the management team. I am delighted to be Chairman of this great business.

I would strongly recommend Cindy Casciani and EquityChair. Her experience of working in private equity has enabled her to genuinely understand the requirements of both the investor and the management when recruiting a Chairman. Cindy also understands that the completion of a private equity transaction can take time and that it is of the utmost importance to keep the lines of communication open between the potential Chairman, the business and the investor throughout the process.

Cindy’s open and easy style also made it very enjoyable to work with her.

Neil Gillis, Chairman of CuroCare

Total Capital Partners worked with EquityChair to recruit a Chairman for our recent investment in Meter Provida.  Cindy Casciani was careful to listen and understand what was needed not only in terms of skills and experience but also cultural fit.  She provided an excellent short-list of candidates, all of a very high calibre. Throughout the process, Cindy provided continued support as we made our decision.  We were very impressed with the service provided – and we would recommend it to others. We will certainly look to work with EquityChair in the future.”
